Just A Couple Of Things...!
Found out some interesting things at the V.A. yesterday!
First of all, if you are getting some type of important test done at the eye doctor's and they put a big ol' machine up to your eye...then tell you "don't blink!", you can guarantee that the first thing you'll do is blink! I learned this the hard way, and it took me about 4 tries of looking into a bright light before I could actually do so without blinking!
Secondly, I didn't know that you could actually do an ultra-sound on an eyeball! They did one on my eye because they needed to measure the size, and the way they normally do it is with light! However, the light wouldn't pass through the cataract so they did an ultra-sound! Another thing it's hard to keep your eye opened for...having a tool the size of a pencil placed on your eyeball! Again, I blinked!
Guess I failed the "non blinking' test for the day!
Just one more thing...I sure do appreciate all of the visits and good wishes yesterday while I was off at the V.A.! Sorry I didn't answer everybody. You know that I normally try and answer all the comments, but my eyes were pretty out of focus after I got back! Made it almost impossible to see the keyboard clearly enough to type!
Guess it's like ol' Ben says "Getting old ain't for wimps!"...you got that one right, Ben!
Thanks again to everybody! Now, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit outside while it's cool!
